Couldn’t rate it highly enough

Sarah Clarke - 10th Jun 2021

Steph instantly made me feel comfortable, relaxed and like I was dealing with an extremely well informed professional!! She was a mind of information on the do’s and donts for my specific skin type & age. If all this wasn’t good enough she gave me the most glorious facial & scalp massage. I know who I’ll be going back to at the buff day spa!! ❤️

Excellent staff member but COVID fee is not right

Anonymous - 15th May 2021

I had a hot stone back massage with Ayanda who was absolutely excellent! Ayanda is very professional and attentive, gave really good concise advices to help and ease off the back pain. I am very happy with the session - very good quality massage. Well done and thank you.

Something to mention for the management though, 5 euro being charged as a COVID fee (or PPE fee) and I dont agree with it. I appreciate the fact that a lot of business's were badly affected as a result of pandemic but its not fair charging your customers for that. I had a voucher which i broke down into two separate sessions and had to pay 5 euro twice, thats 10 euro off my voucher dissapered and i had my own hand gel and mask. I suggest to review this fee. Thank you.

I had a lovely treatment package with stefania today. She made me feel totally at ease with current circumstances, and she was so professional, warm & friendly. She recommended products which I would have bought if I’d had the money but was not in a position today to buy them. I will book in with her for a facial In the new year as she recommended a treatment plan for my skin which I’m excited for. Thanks so much

Absolutely loved the treatment with Stef. But there was a mix up in the appointment time by the new receptionist because of which I missed half of my treatment time. Very disappointed with that. Never received a text confirming the time either like I always get a day before the treatment.

I can't describe how relaxing the overall experience was. Steph had me walking out feeling like a new person. My skin was very soft after the scrub and facial. My back loosened up very well after the massage. I feel fresh!
I would definitely recommend this Spa to anyone looking for a day break or treat.

Felt relaxed but a little annoyed

Jenny Scotson - 20th Oct 2020

My massage was amazing. At 8 months pregnant, it was such a treat to switch off and relax. Being honest, the facial afterwards was nice but it wasn't very relaxing. I understand that the beautician is there to offer advice but I was clearly there to relax before having my baby. After a 90 minute massage, I really didn't want to have to go into my daily skin routine and have problem areas identified. I was there for relaxation reasons, not for a skin consultation, though I do appreciate that that's what some people want. It would be useful if you could opt in or out for skin feedback.

It was great. Mary let me know my pressure points and focused on these areas during the massage. I was relaxed after the session.

Urban escape package

Cathy Quinn - 16th Oct 2020

Verified Appointment Verified by Premier Software

Overall my friend and I enjoyed our experience, Maria was excellent with my friend and very knowledgeable. Facials were great. However we had booked pedicures and were told this would include hard skin removal, cuticle work and soak, but we just received a file and polish. We would have mentioned it at the time but there was also confusion because my friend had to have shellac removed and the staff seemed annoyed about this even though we had mentioned this on booking. I was quite disappointed as I was really looking forward to refreshing my feet skin and not just nails.

Hi Cathy. I am so sorry you were disappointed with your pedicures. Your express pedicure should include a soak and rasping of the foot. I will follow up with your therapists about this as we have treatment protocols that all therapists must follow. - Katie

My boyfriend bought for me the Vitality break package as a gift for my birthday. I never had a special day like that. Everything since the moment that I arrived and the treatment were perfect. It was so relaxing and I learned a lot about my skin. I came home and told my housemates about my experience and 3 days after she went there to do a facial treatment. I highly recommend the place and the therapist who attended me she was the most amazing person. I'm looking forward for next month go again with my friend.

I was welcomed into this warm and friendly salon by a lovely receptionist, full of smiles, who told me about my treatment, completed a short history for my file and helped me pick out my colours.
She then gave me the nicest chamomile tea I've ever tasted!! Then for my treatment. The attention to cuticle work has given an amazing result. The colour and shape are beautiful. Lovely massage fo finish. Maria is a lovely therapist who is friendly and made me feel very comfortable. This was my first time at this salon and I have already booked another treatment for next week!!

I had wonderful morning in Buff Spa. Massage and Image facial with Justyna followed by mani/pedicure with Iga. I booked it as a special treat for my birthday and to take some time out from the constancy of COVID. Both therapist were excellent. The massage was perfect pressure and Justyna gave some great tips on how to get the most out of my skincare regime and products. Iga was very helpful with selecting nail colour and my nails look fab now! I felt totally safe there and it was a great release from the world we now live in. I left it too long to go back, but will now be getting a lot more treatments done. Thanks ladies!
